The CT-100 site came on-line in 1999 and began collecting data on surviving sets; serialization started in 2002 with the 55th known Merrill.

I went through the list line-by-line and found the serialization to be basically accurate. Some details:

[1] Twenty-five numbers from 2003 and 2004 were lost in a computer crash . Six of those 25 were recovered: #75, 77, 89, 94, 95, and 96.

[2] Approximately one-third of the known Merrills on the list were added in the first three years of data accumulation. Nineteen were added in 2002. By January 8, 2006, 110 Merrills were known. One-hundred-twenty-eight by January 10, 2008. Only three each in 2009, 2010, and 2011. But in 2013 things picked up. Ten new Merrills popped up.
